''I will be decorating my homes and I’d encourage any other managers to just do it. We all need to stand together...'' Lizzie, care home manager

''OUR RESIDENTS ARE HEARTBROKEN...'' Registered Care Home Manager

“I am a manager of a residential/nursing home. We are being told the local authority are trying to put a stop to care homes putting decorations up for Christmas. After everything that has been taken away from our residents this year, we’re now expected to take Christmas away from them too. “Infection control” issues. I had a visit from infection control and staff had started to decorate our reception area and she told us “I wouldn’t bother going any further, because you’ll be told to rip them all down”. I asked the direct question to the local authority bosses and they’ve told me there’s no published guidance as of yet but they won’t allow Christmas decorations to go up.

''What else do we have to deny our elderly residents this year? We are outraged''. Care Home Manager

I went on a UK group and care homes all around the UK are commenting saying they have been told are not allowed to decorate either. Our hearts are breaking for our beautiful residents. Our carers have now taken all the decorations down. It seems local authority are intent on taking away any little thing that may bring our residents joy. That in itself is more dangerous to their well-being than COVID and our home has been through an outbreak and I stand by that statement.''

''I find this downright appalling. As if residents haven't lost enough this year already. Why deprive them of the joy of Christmas? It's cruelty at it's worst...''Lorraine (Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Facebook Page)
